Daesh Leader Still Alive: Iraqi İntelligence Official

By Ibrahim Saleh


An Iraqi intelligence officer said Sunday that Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was still alive.


Last month, the Russian Defense Ministry media said that al-Baghdadi was believed to have been killed in an airstrike in Syria.


U.S. officials, however, said they don't have any proof confirming the Daesh leader's death.


"Al-Baghdadi is still hiding in Syria in an area outside [the northern Syrian province of] Raqqah," Abu Ali al-Basri, the head of the intelligence and anti-terrorism department at the Iraqi Interior Ministry, told the local Al-Sabah newspaper.


He insisted that reports speaking about al-Baghdadi's death were untrue.


The U.S. offers a $25-million bounty for al-Baghdadi, who split from al-Qaeda organization in 2013.


He was last seen in public in 2014 after his group captured Mosul when he announced the creation of the so-called caliphate in both Syria and Iraq.


Last week, Iraqi authorities announced the full liberation of Mosul, the last Daesh stronghold in northern Iraq. -
